Sorry if it came across like I'm having a crack - I'm not - I did read what you wrote, and I do get what you're saying, just that I think its more of a case of you "think" you did well on certain projects when leaving it to the last minute, when in fact you could have done so much better had you not. In that respect it does negatively affect your performance because even subconsciously (and I suppose consciously according to your post) you think there is no tangible benefit to planning or better time management, so performance wise, you're not going to achieve your full potential.
Um no, I don't just "think" I did well. I earned pretty much straight As all through school. I always did my best work, whether left to the last minute or not. And just because I left finishing things til the last minute doesn't mean I don't know how to manage time or plan ahead. It was only because I'm extremely well organize/know how to manage my time and plan ahead that I put things off. I didn't just leave EVERYTHING til the end. I always did research and readings, etc ahead of time, and always knew in my mind what had to get done. I just left the actual execution til the end - because I knew in my mind that was all the time I needed, and could (and did, continually) get away with it.
Full potential? I was in the top of my class and won an esteemed award, and always got first pick of anything I've ever wanted career/achievement wise.
Like I said, the only real downside was the physical and mental stress of pulling all nighters.
I just fucking hated doing school work. Why spend my time doing something I dislike, when I'm skilled enough at it that I can do it in far less time than the average idiot?

Perhaps I was not whipped enough as a child.
